Metal Briefs: Two by Two by Two, Part Two


You put two songs on your release. I put two sentences in my review.

Ranger: Shock Skull 7" (2014)
4.5 out of 5 stars

This is a 7" called Shock Skull from a great speed metal band that's already impressed me. Honestly I should be able to stop at Shock Skull, because that title speaks for itself.

Mist: Demo 2013
2.5 out of 5 stars

Mist plays female-fronted doom metal very much in the vein of Witch Mountain. Sadly, this vein is not nearly as rich in, really, any respect.

Paramnesia / Unru: Paramnesia / Unru Split (2014)
3.5 out of 5 stars

Paramnesia plays a long, WITTR-esque black metal epic with tortured screams and some interesting drum passages. Unru are heavier, rougher around the edges, more dissonant, but also somewhat less compelling.
